Julian takes a partnership approach to projects and firmly believes that development can benefit everyone if done correctly.

Having worked in specialist property communications since 2006, Julian has worked across the country and across the sectors. He has worked for retailers and retail landlords, infrastructure and renewable energy generators, and most recently has been delivering strategic communications support around strategic housing allocations, estate regeneration, town centre developement and planning applications.

Julian remains at the forefront of consultation and is particularly proud of the development of Cratus Engage, Cratus’ engagement platform. Cratus Engage brings together the best of formal, informal and digital engagement techniques to create consultations which are accessible to everyone and suitable for every project.
